Oops, I think my last comment was a little misplaced. Sorry about that; embarrassed. I shall now go put it where it should have gone. And just as an aside; if you have read my books on Tom Type and were wondering if they were based on on a real person, then look wonder no more. Grief.
Hello, I was wondering, and I know its a bit cheeky but I joined the Alliance just too late for your offer of 50% off your ProWritingAidPremium lifetime licence, if a discount was still possible? I will understand if you are not able to but if you don’t ask…
To be honest, I will be buying the licence anyway as it’s just what I need to help with my work and make me just that little bit more Independent. That said, a 10% discount wouldn’t be turned away.
Thank you for your time,
